Breaking (the bank): CBO says 2013 budget deficit estimated at $845 billion

Congressional Budget Office “figures” are out.

Oh, well. Dropping.

Luke Russert snarks, or he isn’t too swift.

Citizens don’t find it amusing, nor a cause for celebration.

      I have found you to be a comedian, and not taken seriously

    So how can there be a “budget deficit estimate” without a budget…??

    Spending more than you earn is a spending deficit not a budget deficit.

    How do you have a BUDGET deficit without having an actual BUDGET?

    I can remember when a $500 billion budget deficit was unthinkable.

    As for the 2013 deficit being less than $1 trillion, I’ll believe it when I see it–in 2014, when we’ve got the real numbers for 2013.
